National Biodiversity Strategies & Action Plans 2.0: Lessons learned (Seychelles)

376 views

Published on

What has been learnt so far in the course of revising national biodiversity strategies and actions plans (NBSAPs)?

On 12 November 2013, representatives from Seychelles presented their key lessons at a side event to the Convention on Biological Diversity global workshop in Nairobi.

In Seychelles, biodiversity mainstreaming has started in specific sectors, including harmonising environment and land use planning legislation, shared management of ecologically important areas with the owners and operators of tourism establishments, and community-based involvement in setting up an eco-management system between the Seychelles Fishing Authority and artisanal fishers.
